AORN Periop 101: A Core CurriculumTM Course courseware

Improve perIoperatIve educatIon

consistently prepare your nurses through evidence-based education from aorn

High staff turnover and low physician satisfaction are often caused by lack of confidence in the knowledge and skills of nursing staff. Implementing an evidence-based education program for perioperative nurses will deliver the knowledge and skills necessary for building or re-building that confidence. AORN Periop 101: A Core CurriculumTM Course is the gold standard for preparing nurses to function competently in the OR. The program's rigorous review process ensures the program is always compliant with the most current AORN Perioperative Standards, Recommended Practices, and Guidelines. When perioperative nurses learn the "hows" and the "whys" of Perioperative Nursing, they understand the rationale of their field and unlock better performance.

"I can't tell you how much Periop 101 has helped our new nurses feel more confident... our morale has improved 100%!"
